Dividing fences

A dividing fence is a ‘sufficient fence’ that separates the land of different owners, whether on the common boundary of adjoining lands or in a line other than the common boundary.

If you are seeking to construct a dividing fence you must meet the obligations defined in the Dividing Fences Act 1961 prior to construction.

The City of Wanneroo does not have ownership of the Dividing Fences Act 1961. Information can be obtained from the Building Commision website (click below).
